Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
sddm takes about 15 seconds to start up, mainly in starting the greeter
Greeter session started successfully
Message received from greeter: Connect
I at first thought sddm should not try to enumerate all users' face icons at startup, but I'm not sure that that is the hangup.
For comparison, kdm seems to take about 2 seconds to startup.
sddm-0.9.0-1.20141007git6a28c29b.fc21 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 21.
sddm-0.9.0-1.20141007git6a28c29b.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
sddm-0.9.0-1.20141007git6a28c29b.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
I still see slow startup with sddm-0.9.0-1.20141007git6a28c29b.fc21
It might be a bit faster, but there is still a noticeable period with a black screen.

At least from my testing, startup of the greeter itself is WAY faster. Before the update, I got about 20 seconds to get some display. Currently, it's under one second which occurs in the period between plymouth exiting and sddm-greeter starting. In the future, this will be hidden by reusing plymouth's output in the meantime.
Yeah, installed and tested now the version sddm-0.9.0-2.20141007git6a28c29b.fc20.
It's really fast, one second at the maximum.

I'm seeing sddm slow to display login screen on F22 with sddm-0.10.0-4.fc22.x86_64. Maybe a 20-30 sec delay after logout before getting the login screen. I have homes on nfs mounts and currently one is unavailable.
I assume the F21 package patch is in the F22 package.
Suggestions on how to diagnose would be welcome.
